a few moments wasted

new GI Joe movie looks like crap. save your time and re-watch warren ellis' animated version?

new harry potter looks beautiful.

x-men origins: wolverine -- looks over the top, but not nearly as bad as the reviews I've been hearing. I believe the reviews; maybe someone could re-mix it?

terminator salvation looks amazing. I love the stunt work at the beginning (with the motorcycle). I almost want to see the previous terminator movie to catch up on the story. ((but there's always wikipedia for that, right?))


OH. From earlier so I didn't think to mention:

D-9 looks amazing!!11!!1! Very curious how it's going to be shot (compared to the trailer--which is likely more meta than the movie will be?)

And then from later:

The Limits of Control looks beautiful, and solid, and interesting. (Jim Jarmusch)

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen looks somewhere between 'eh' and 'meh', but it's got me curious anyway.

I've seen a few of Jarmusch's films. I absolutely loved Dead Man, but some of his others kind of fell flat for me. The Limits of Control does look intriguing. Thanks for the link to the preview. His stuff generally doesn't get much press.

D-9 looks cool.

I will probably pass on the GI-Joe and Transformer movies unless I'm watching them with my boys.

...but you didn't mention the remakes of "Footloose" or "The Karate Kid" in the works. How could you leave those off?

Dead Man was my introduction to Jarmusch, and, any time I remember, it goes on my top movies of all time. I also liked Ghost Dog a fair amount, but might not as much in retrospect. Down by Law I really enjoyed. I _think_ I saw Stranger than Paradise, but I'm not sure of it--and if I did, I don't think I was conscious enough to watch it.

I'd managed to forget about the The Karate Kid remake--didn't even know about the Footloose one. This all started on MySpace's trailers page, and there weren't a lot of them. :) I skipped two or three I wasn't up to even mentioning... (or that there wasn't enough material to form an opinion).
